The Gransfors Bruks Froe is a safe alternative to the axe when splitting large pieces of wood. The long blade is placed on top of the wood to be split, while a smaller piece of wood or a mallet is used to 'club' the blade downwards. As used by Ray Mears, this is an efficient way of splitting and shaping, and can also be used to 'steer' your splitting when working with troublesome wood.
Forged in Sweden by the esteemed Gransfors Bruks company, each Froe is finished to an exceptionally high standard and is a tool for professionals and casual outdoorsmen alike. The wooden handle can be removed after use for easy transportation.
